During this creative process talk, artist in residence Athena LaTocha will share reflections on her artistic process and insights on her works in progress at Plains Art Museum. View LaTocha’s unconventional studio and learn about her innovative approach to creating landscapes.

Athena LaTocha (b. Anchorage, Alaska) is a Hunkpapa Lakota / Keweenaw Bay Ojibwe artist whose large-scale works on paper explore the tenuous relationship between natural landscapes and landscapes marked by human intervention. LaTocha’s preferred mark-making tools include rocks, bricks, and automobile tire shreds, which she utilizes for their physicality and ability to convey gestural intensity. She works on the floor, reflecting the relationship between human and landscape. LaTocha will participate in a month-long residency at Plains Art Museum, exploring and creating work inspired by the land through her unorthodox method. This exhibition in our 1st Floor Atrium will showcase work created during LaTocha’s residency.
